Meet Melodi

Hi! I’m Melodi, owner and head content creator for Family Review Guide. As a native of Orange County, I grew up in Huntington Beach and spent most of my younger days soaking up the California sun. I have been happily married for 23 years and my husband and I have 3 children together.  We enjoy playing tennis, checking out new hotels, dining out and visiting museums and festivals.

About 10 years ago I joined the online blogging world and have never looked back. I started with a restaurant review blog called and shortly after launched my family lifestyle site Now I am a contributing writer for Visit Anaheim, The Irvine Chamber Visitors Bureau, Visit Laguna Beach and CBS “Best of” section.

My passion is travel Blogging and reviewing  Hotels and Resorts, Cruises, Restaurants and Amusement Parks. I was born on the East Coast and raised in the West Coast, and I love to fly. Here is a collection of hotel reviews I have done in the past:

“Thank you for being so good at what you do!  As you can imagine, we have worked with quite a few bloggers over the years and you, my friend, give bloggers a really great name.  I will definitely be adding you to my distribution list for upcoming opportunities with our clients. Please let us know when you are coming through again.  I’d be more than happy to see what we have going on to suit your exploration”

“This is an AMAZING review. Thank you so much for such a thorough and enthusiastic description of what our social membership would encompass, we appreciate it. We shared this with the Leisure Sports, Inc. marketing team (owners of Renaissance) and they loved it”!

“I must say that I was blown away by the quality of your work. I would really enjoy continuing to work together. I am building out a more robust blogger arm for our brands and I am being rather selective on who I activate. You were the ONLY blogger to receive a hoverboard and I am glad we picked you to work with. Again, stellar content!
